Fr. Benedict Groeschel...

...speaks the truth, at a talk at Ave Maria:
The Protestant ethic in this country was very fertile, a favorable environment for the growth and establishment of Catholicism. But it's gone. And we are moving now into a studied, organized, purposeful secularist state, a state that refuses to have any relationship to the divine law or to God. And you see this in the decisions of the Supreme Court in recent decades. Please God, it may change. But the Supreme Court is the wild card in American democracy. I personally think it's the crack in the foundation of our country that will eventually bring the country down. The Supreme Court gave us the Civil War. The Supreme Court gave us racial segregation after the Civil War. And the Supreme Court gave us abortion. And it may yet do worse things. We are happy to see it moving the right direction. But it's a wild card...
